PROBLEMS WITH CALCULATION OF THE FUEL

Post by giuseppe66 »

I have tried many times to set the fuel warning but I can not make it work. Every time I refuel, I reset the fuel tank and set a warning level to refuel, but when I start with the bike, after refueling, it tells me that I have to refuel. I did a complete reset of all the ZUMO but nothing, the problem continues. I asked GARMIN but they can not tell me what it depends on. I tried another ZUMO and he too has the same problem: I was hoping that a firmware update would solve the problem but nothing, not even the firmware. I did a CLEAR NON VOL in the hidden menu but not even that solved. Does anyone have the same problem?

I've use and test on ZUMO 590 and ZUMO 595
I added a tank capacity of 28 liters, with a maximum range of 280 kilometers and a 200 kilometer fuel warning

Fuel reminder works great on my Z665. 200 mile tank, 50 mile low fuel warning. Why would the GPS need the tank capacity? It's not like it's monitoring fuel consumption. I like having that warning, as when I'm iding and listening to music, I sometimes forget to look at the fuel. An extra warning sure beats walking.

Even my bike has a low fuel warning but I also wanted to use this gps option. If the American version works well I think it's due to a bug of the European version. It is the only explanation left
